Cool, Calm and Collected

Calming as the sky on a long winter's night, this sand window offers the weary eye an ever-changing view. Multicolored sand and water are sealed in a wooden frame, with the northern lights in a midnight sky printed behind them. Rotate the glass, and enjoy the sight of the sand swirling and shifting into clouds and landscapes, glaciers and mountains of intricate lines and patterns. The included rear mounting hardware allows you to rotate the frame a full 360 degrees. Created by Klaus Bosch and handmade in Austria, this inventive artwork will bring a calming, natural presence and a sense of wonder to your office or home. Please note that the video above is of Black Window Art, available here.

        Comments about UncommonGoods Aurora Borealis Sand Art:

        It is beautiful! But arrived with either too much air or too little water. When we tried to insert the needle(gently obviously) it would absolutely not go thru. The needle ended up breaking even though we were extremely careful! Now it just is nice to look at but pointless to try upside to watch the sand because it does not flow like it's supposed to.

          These were popular back in the day!
          They are still awesome and due a big comeback, I think if more people knew they existed they would all own one.
